CSIA, with funding from the Department of Social Services, NDIS Jobs and Market Fund Round 1, has developed this Building Financial Resilience Resource toolkit.

This resource can be used by you and your organisation to build your financial capacity and resilience as well as gain an understanding about sources of capital.

The content was developed after a series of Industry workshops around the key topics covered in the chapters of this resource.

Throughout this kit you will learn about:

  • Your financial numbers – what you need to know, how they impact on your resilience and a checklist you can use.
  • Your business model – how it will help you to achieve your goals and manage your resources towards building capital.
  • Your governance, processes and systems, structure, digitisation and workforce – building on your understanding and how they work together to create opportunity and what it means for investors.
  • Your next steps for accessing capital growth and sustainability.

You will have access to information, tools and additional resources throughout the chapters of this toolkit.

This resource will support you to continue to deliver on your mission, meet challenges and changes, and support the community that you serve.

This toolkit is part of a program of works CSIA is delivering to advance the Community Services Industry through doing business better.
